Pumpkin French Toast

14 Oct

One thing I think we all had when at least once growing up, French Toast. But what I bet you haven’t had before is this kind. One that’s filled with the sweet, cinnamon flavor mixed with the savory taste of pumpkin.

Got your attention yet?

Well I took something that’s not usually known to be healthy, like French toast, filled it with protein and nutrient dense ingredients, and came up with my recipe for Pumpkin French Toast :) I love it because it’s a decadent breakfast made in only a few minutes. Yes, something you don’t have to spend the whole morning toiling over! And in case you are wondering, no, I promise not every one of my posts will have pumpkin in it…but I must admit, it is one of my favorite foods. Plus, it has so many health benefits :)

      Hi Vicki! It would depend on what bread you use, but for mine (80 calories a slice), and using the other ingredients I listed, the actual french toast would be about 230! Ans then you would have to add whatever toppings you put on it as well :) Very healthy meal! Hope you enjoy!
